Business Groups Appeal Ruling On Taxes For Childcare, Homelessness Services

Business and tax groups have filed an appeal of a recent court ruling in favor of two separate San Francisco tax measures named Proposition C.

Three business-related groups — California Business Roundtable, the California Business Properties Association and the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association — joined forces earlier this year to try to invalidate San Francisco’s Proposition C, a measure passed in November that taxes the city’s biggest corporations to deal with homelessness. The groups had filed court documents arguing that the passage of Prop. C violated the state Constitution because it only passed with a simple majority vote.

Prop. C is expected to raise more than $300 million annually for housing and homelessness services.
